An older bit of malware, Slingshot, has been discovered to have been hiding for up to six years in MikroTik routers which have been co-opted into directly attacking connected Windows devices by pushing an infected DLL down to them. The malware was incredibly stealthy and has been undetected for a very long time, even through more than a hundred companies are known to have been infected by it.
Whether the malware is in other routers, has other attack vectors, is unknown.
